Wrench, Alan A and Cleland, Joanne and Scobbie, James M (2011) An ultrasound protocol for comparing tongue contours: upright vs. supine. Proceedings of 17th ICPhS, Hong Kong. pp. 2161-2164.
A study is described that employs ultrasound to measure the effects of gravity on production of vowels. The materials are designed to encourage consistent production over repetitions. A recording and analysis protocol is described which allows for correction for probe movement or rejection of data where correction is not possible. Results indicate a slight superior and posterior displacement of the tongue root in supine posture, consistent with a shift in the support structure of the tongue.
